Take a closer look at the singer's extensive collection of body art
For a while in the early 90s, MC Hammer had it all. In the hip-hop game, Hammer quite literally wore the trousers. But even a hit as big as U Can't Touch This couldn't fund a lavish and generous lifestyle forever. He managed to squander $33 million in just five years, filing for bankruptcy in 1996 owing $13.7 million with only $9.6 million in assets.
In his court hearing, Hammer listed debts including a $500,000 loan from Dallas Cowboys star Deion Sanders and $100,000 owed to an interior decorator whose business went bust after the rapper didn't pay.
We're guessing that's who was responsible for famously installing a dishwasher in the rapper's bedroom, alongside a gold and marble Jacuzzi (surely he could've just bunged the dishes in there to save money?).
